Planned TCN Upgrade Of Ejigbo & Alimosho Power Transformers

PRESS STATEMENT
NOTIFICATION TO CUSTOMERS: PLANNED TCN UPGRADE OF T1 EJIGBO AND T3 ALIMOSHO

Lagos, Nigeria: October 11, 2017: As part of her strategic effort to strengthen capacity, the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has announced plans to upgrade both T1 Ejigbo Power transformer and T3 Alimosho Power transformer from 30MVA to 100MVA.

The project, slated to commence on Monday 16th October, 2017 will run for a period of five (5) weeks during which time some customers of Ikeja Electric Plc will experience increased load shedding activity. Details of the project plan indicate that TCN, in order to minimize impact on communities will effect the upgrade one after the other, upgrading T1 Ejigbo first before work on T3 commences. Areas that may be affected during T1 Ejigbo upgrade include:

•Oke-Afa II (NNPC, Bungalow, Ori-oke,Ire-akari,Ejigbo,Osolo,Ilamoshe and Low-cost),
•Shasha (Orisumbare, Oguntade, Foursquare and Airforce)and environs.

The T3 Alimosho upgrade by TCN aims to improve the 30MVA Power Transfromer in the area to 100MVA. Areas that will likely experience increased loadshedding during this period include:

•Ipaja (Alimosho, Shasha, Orelope, Akowonjo, FHA, Oki and Okunola) and Adiyan (Unity, Kuwait and Olorunadaba)

Ikeja Electric Plc will use all available channels to mitigate the impact of this necessary upgrade on her customers. Regular updates will be made available as the project progresses. Please call IE customer care lines 01-7000250, 01-4483900 and 0700-0-2255-453 for further inquiries.
